From the Back Cover:

Master the techniques for gathering electronic evidence and explore the new frontier of crime investigation.

 

 

The demand for computer forensics experts greatly exceeds the supply. With the rapid growth of technology in all parts of our lives, criminal activity must be tracked down and investigated using electronic methods that require up-to-date techniques and knowledge of the latest software tools. Authors Linda Volonino, Jana Godwin, and Reynaldo Anzaldua share their expertise to give you the legal, technical, and investigative skills you need to launch your career in computer forensics. You can also use Computer Forensics: Principles and Practices  to help you advance in careers such as criminal justice, accounting, law enforcement, and federal investigation.

 

Computer Forensics : Principles and Practices gives you in-depth understanding of:

  • Using the correct investigative tools and procedures to maximize effectiveness of evidence gathering.
  • Keeping evidence in pristine condition so it will be admissible in a legal action.

·         Investigating large-scale attacks such as identity theft, fraud, phishing, extortion, and malware infections.

  • The legal foundations for proper handling of traditional and electronic evidence such as the Federal Rules of Evidence and Procedure as well as the Fourth Amendment and other laws regarding search warrants and civil rights.
  • Practical tools such as FTK, EnCase, Passware, Ethereal, LADS, WinHex, GIMP, Camouflage, and Snort.
